Currency is a technology in Civilization Revolution.


Currency can be used both as an alternative to production or to grease the wheels of diplomacy. You can use it to pay people to go to war worth another country or use it to speed up production in a city. Some leaders will ask for gold in turn for them not to go to war with you.

Currency reveals Gold on the map and allows players to build Caravans, Markets, and the Trade Fair of Troyes. The first player to discover Currency receives a free Caravan, a free Market, and Marco Polo.

Players can receive Currency for free by having 250 gold in their treasury.
